This museum has lots of interactive exhibits. I expected to just see lots of farm equipment, but was pleasantly surprised at the screens that demonstrated the actual work of farmers. Big museum that takes some time to enjoy.

There are all sorts of displays about agriculture on the Southern Plains. The museum is mostly housed in two large silos. The event space is large and worked really well.
